Sarcastic, Deep, Versatile, Youthful, Confident
My voice is normally deep and calm, a good mid-ranged voice, but I consider it to be very versatile and I can speak in higher or lower pitches than normal thanks to the default range. On my own work, I use it in-character to be very dry and sarcastic, even angry at times.
I've been told by quite a few women that I've spoken to that it's also pretty sexy, though it's up to you to make that decision yourself. I don't like to brag too much. :)

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Southern American accent, due to my upbringing, but my normal voice is pretty standard. I can also do lower pitched voices like the "sexy saxophone player" guy. I also do quite convincing British accents thanks to being friends with quite a few Europeans. I can do silly and cartoon-ish voices as well, and if we're being very specific here, I do a VERY convincing flamboyant homosexual male voice.
My Voice Experience
Being completely honest, I've never been hired for voiceover work, this is my first time trying out for something, but that doesn't mean I haven't done voiceover work.
I run a Youtube channel with about 1,000 subscribers and upwards of 295,000 hits where I do voiceovers for gameplay commentaries, many of my most recent ones being in-character.
It is a fictional podcast in the vein of "The Onion" where myself and a few others do 10-15 minutes of improvisation pertaining to the electronic media industry. There is a lot of voice acting involved in this podcast and the comments prove that people believe what they hear, even though the news is entirely made up.
Graduated high school with honors and multiple college credit hours, though none of which were specifically geared towards voiceover work. I did take drama in high school and continue to act as various characters through my film-making and Youtube exploits. I am also a dedicated and avid writer.
My Studio Equipment
Due to this being my first time getting into voiceover work, I typically use Audacity, the open-source audio editing software for most of my sound effect needs. I have a standard microphone that catches a clear sound but plan on upgrading very soon, especially if I receive an offer on this site.
I've had my eye on the Blue Snowball and Spark Digital for a while, though. I've used a Snowball in the past and had very good results with it. Should the need arise, I am willing to purchase specific equipment to give my client the products they want.
I am a very adaptive individual when it comes to creative work. I consider myself to be a proficient actor, even more so when it's only the voice involved. I love portraying characters and getting inside their heads. Being quite shy in reality, it's very easy for me to flip the switch and become a different person for a film or character. I also do a lot of writing and understand what makes a good character and how they would react through subtle vocal effects/changes as well as through dialogue.
Though I lack documented experience, I have been voice acting my whole life and would love to have a chance to make something happen together. I'm comfortable with and understand my voice and I know how to act with it. That's all that matters. Being "good" and experienced on paper can only get someone so far. It's those that give stellar and cohesive performances that make creative projects go down in history. No rambling list of previous minor roles and past failures can change that fact.
Let's do this.
